What uncle Ralph Waldo Emerson said was:
"I hate quotations. Tell me what you know."
Well, it's good to call into question people like me
who sometimes display no wisdom of their own but
just quote. So, what good is a quotation if it doesn't
quicken you into wisdom and make you stand, as uncle
Ralph said elsewhere, on your own feet. (Emerson's
essay on 'Self-Reliance')

Thanks, Peter.
Sometimes an elucidation of a line of poetry comes unsought as
in the following quotation from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
"The only gift is a portion of thyself."
A cute exposition of "Datta: what have we given ?"
